Had family visiting and celebrated our son-in-laws birthday at the Lighthouse. We all had an outstanding meal and enjoyed every minute. The food is superb and the service is excellent. We had desert as well. WOW !!!!!!

We were not impressed by the food. It was very expensive for what it was.It was located near a lake so the view was nice.

An out of the way, neat place. It also has a Tiki bar & restaurant down by the water. Fare runs from good down home cooking to fancier. All at good prices for what you get. If in the area, I recommend.
